Philip and Rachel were fabulous. They had so much knowledge and enjoyed sharing it with us. I especially liked that our group was smaller!
Peaceful walk at a good pace brisk enough, but with plenty of time for photos, taking in the sights and sounds and listening to stories. We were led by a lovely and well informed guide, and it was a privilege to be in such a magical place. It was a good time of year to do the walk temperature between 8 and 20 degrees, and not too early a start compared to summer. The desert was looking very green, and there were lots of birds around, particularly at the water hole. It was exceptionally good.
This was my first tour, after arriving in Uluru and I was thrilled to come away, having learnt so much from our 2 guides, Lachie and Gareth. They were absolutely amazing!!!!!!!! They told us the stories of the Anangu people and how they lived, as we walked along at a leisurely pace and pointed out and named all the types of trees and birds we saw along the way. It was as amazing journey, walking beside The Rock and imaging what it would have been like to live, as these people did, for sooooo many years!!!! Lachie was a font of information and made the walk so informative, I was really thrilled. We sat and had an enjoyable breakfast half way through the walk, over looking the area where you are permitted to climb. I am pleased to say it was closed on this particular day, but some people were still flaunting the rules and attempting to climb a small area. I sincerely look forward to the climb being closed for good!!
I can highly recommend this trip, rather than walk the walk by yourself, as you learn soooo much. Thank you again, Lachie and Gareth.
Absolutely fabulous way to take in the majesty of this sacred site. Our guide provided an educational commentary on the indigenous Australians and the significance of the site.
Las guias fueron muy atentas y simpáticas. Son unos 12km, el camino es fácil aunque con el calor el final se hace un poco más duro. Uluru es impresionante!! Merece la pena hacer el tour!
Although parts of the walk were closed off due to the floods they endured it was still a really excellent morning. The place is quite spectacular and had an outstanding guide in Shannon, who's passion for her job rubbed off on all the people in the group
The tour guide Elsa was magnificent, very friendly , extremely knowledgeable. The tour was very relaxed a good walk but not too strenuous. I would really recommend this tour, sprectacular
This tour was amazing!
This was a truly memorable day thanks to our very well informed guide. Her name Sylvia, has thoroughly researched and studied to teach us about Uluru and the significance of all we saw on this very special long walk. A nice breakfast was provided. My husband and I agree that this was the highlight of our trip to Ayres Rock Resort and by far the best tour guide we have ever had anywhere in all our travels.
It was fantastic. Learnt so much about the spiritual aspect of Uluru. Loved the walk. Not difficult at all. Breakfast as we sat and looked at Uluru was great. I would recommend this walk to all.
